41st Annual Conference of Regional Science Association International: British and Irish Section

A Colloquium for Doctoral Students in Regional Science will be organised in conjunction with the Annual Congress of the Regional Science Association International British and Irish Section. The 2012 Colloquium will take place on August 28th. This will be most beneficial to those in the first two years of doctoral study.

The Colloquium aims to provide an opportunity for doctoral students in Regional Science to discuss their research and work in progress with a distinguished faculty. Overviews of the current state of the research in regional science will also be included in the programme of the Colloquium. There will also be opportunities for doctoral students to interact informally both with each other and the faculty.

Attendance at the colloquium is free for doctoral students who are attending the annual conference. All participating Doctoral students are also required to register for the Annual Conference and may present papers at the conference. They are also eligible to apply for consideration for the early career researchers prizes.

The core faculty proposed for the Colloquium will be composed of leading researchers in the field.
